Compliance with labour legislation: its efficacy and efficiency

This volume is part of research and studies under the new Programme on Labour Administration and Inspection. The relationship between labour law and its efficacy and efficiency is not a new subject. However, the debate around this topic is becoming even more important in the light of the current crisis.

In this report Professor Adalberto Perulli of the University of Cà Foscari of Venice
and Mr Giuseppe Casale, Director of Labour Administration and Inspection Programme LAB/ADMIN, have collected the contributions of a group of eminent European scholars. They
discuss the importance of the subject matter, its special nature, the “special” treatment,
which labour law demands, the necessity of specific auxiliary disciplines and the unity of
the goal: that is to say the search for a real balance between the compliance of labour
legislation and its efficacy/efficiency in the real world.
